Trivia Challenge gives your attendees a fun and engaging way to interact with the Event App. Event organizers can manage trivia questions from the CMS or the app, allowing complete moderation of the feature. Make Trivia Challenge even more rewarding by offering prizes to attendees that perform the best!
Enabling Trivia Challenge
To enable Trivia Challenge, go to the Discover More section of the CMS and click on the corresponding "Install Now" button on the Trivia Challenge box. This will add a section called "Trivia" to your app layout.
Using Trivia Challenge in the CMS
Creating a Session
To start, click 'Create New Session'. Then, give the trivia session a name.
Note: it is possible to run more than one trivia session at a time.
Next, to add questions, click 'Add New Question'. Type in the question and the corresponding answer options, then select the radio button under "Correct Answer" for whichever answer option is the correct one. Click 'Save Question'.
You can input the time allotment per question by going to the end of your question list and inputting the time in seconds.
Moving and Deleting Questions
To change the question order, click the six dots on the left of the question box and drag the question to the desired location.
To remove a question, click 'Delete Question'.
Exporting Trivia Challenge Information
Once a game has been ended, you can download the list of responses and final leaderboard. Click on 'Export Responses' and 'Export Leaderboard' to view how each attendee answered each question and their final score on the leaderboard.
Note: DO NOT click 'Restart trivia session' or you will not be able to download the response and leaderboard information from the previous trivia game.
Moderating Trivia Challenge
Event organizers have the ability to moderate trivia sessions in the CMS or the app. In order to moderate trivia in the app, the user must be an attendee of the event and be listed as a trivia admin.
To add a trivia admin, search for an attendee in the "Select Admins" box. Then select the name of the attendee you want to add as a trivia admin.
Moderating in the CMS
Beginning a Trivia Session from the CMS
To start a trivia session, click on 'Start Game' under the name of your session at the bottom of the page.
Wait for players to join the session, then click 'Start Question' to display the first question and all subsequent questions.
You can end a trivia session at any time by clicking 'Reset Trivia Session'.
Displaying the Leaderboard
As questions are being answered by attendees in the app, you can display the Leaderboard by clicking on 'Display Leaderboard'. In the event there is a tie on the Leaderboard, the system will use the fastest answer times as the tiebreaker.
Note: the Leaderboard associated with Trivia Challenge is different than the Leaderboard associated with the Points system based on app actions.
Configuring the Presentation Screen
With Trivia Challenge, you can display the trivia session on a monitor. The presentation screen includes the home screen, which shows the number of individuals that have joined the game, and the trivia questions.
You can change the background image of the home screen by typing in the URL of the image.
To launch the presentation screen to display on a monitor, click 'Launch Presentation'.
Moderating in the App
If you are a trivia admin then you can moderate a session from the app. You will be presented with the following screen that allows you to enter the player view as usual, or go to the admin view.
Tap 'Admin View'. On the next screen, you will see the option to start and manage your trivia sessions. It's also very crucial to pay attention to the warning at the bottom of the screen where it reads:
Important: if you leave a game you are controlling, the game will end for all players.
You will also be prompted with a similar warning if you try to exit the game at any point.
Beginning a Trivia Session from the App
Tap 'Start' to begin that trivia session (or 'Manage' if a game is already in progress). Just like in the CMS, you will be able to display questions by tapping 'Start Question'. Additionally, you can display the leaderboard, end the game, or reset the trivia session.
Ending the game ends the current session keeping the participants scores intact, while resetting the trivia session sets everyone's scores back to zero.
Lastly, you can view the game as it currently appears for attendees by scrolling to the bottom of the admin view.
Playing Trivia Challenge in the App
To participate in a game, attendees will go to the Trivia section in the app and click 'Let's Play'. On the home screen, they will see the game lobby.
To answer questions as they appear, attendees will tap on an answer response.
If an attendee answers incorrectly, when time finishes, the results will show the correct answer in green and the attendee's selected wrong answer in orange.
When the session finishes, the final screen will show how the attendee placed amongst the competition, as well as the full leaderboard. Additionally, attendees can post their results to the Activity Feed by clicking on 'Post to Activity Feed'.
